what senator ron wyden had to say, you are starting to see sloganeering from the left, basically talking about how this is going to kill lower and middle income people, the numbers do not stand up to that in logic. maria: a bitter back and forth on the senate floor with senator hatch and senator brown. joining the conversation's council of economic advisers chairman, texas congressman louis gohmert joins us and federal reserve president and ceo, robert is with us. and jack brewer is here. our top story is clearing the hurdles to tax reform. republicans paved the way for the most brand of tax code overhaulin' three decades, the house passed the tax the last night while the senate finance committee teed up its version of the legislation for a full
vote. >> 227, and as 205, the bill is passed. without section motion to reconsider is laid upon is able. >> from the start we said failure is not an option of the president, every step of the way with us, has been a tremendous partner on this issue. i got to say how proud i am of this conference. >> tax reform is hard but we know there are people struggling in this country. >> donald trump and i will be fighting every day to pass the largest tax cut in american history and we will do it this year. the ball is in the senate's court. maria: the president tweeted good numbers on stocks in the economy. if we get tax cut and reform we will see great results. of democrats were not such obstructionists and understood the power of lower taxes we would be able to get many of their ideas into the bill. this is a major victory for republicans. >> i think it is and back to
the earlier point about sloganeering one of the big talking points, 30 million americans are going to lose health care. those people can -- a failing program, the worst coverage that costs more or they cannot. they are not going to lose -- 13 million people will not lose health insurance. dagen: and pay the penalty. dagen: in the first paragraph of the statement from senator ron wyden on the passage, the last sentence but it is always in the verbs the democrats choose, today republicans unanimously approved to steal from families and hard-working americans to pay tax cuts for multinational corporations, republicans will have to work hard to fight back on that language because they tax-cut for companies is great to create jobs, and keep us as the
most vibrant economy in the world number one, and number 2 in the joint committee on taxation numbers, the reason the numbers can go to 2023, looks like people earning 20 to $30,000 a year get a tax increase because they are factoring in them presumably not taking the obamacare subsidy so that counts as a tax increase which i'm sure you talked about but this is illogical the way these numbers work out. if you don't factor that and everybody gets a tax increase. maria: $900 billion is a business cut. this is largely the point of this plan, to lower taxes on business to make an environment attractive so businesses hire workers put the talking points are there, things got heated in the senate, watch the exchange
between senators hatch and brown. >> i resent anybody saying i'm doing this for the rich. give me a break. you guys overplays at all the time and it gets old, you want to quit. i am not through. i get sick and tired of it. a nice political play. >> all due respect i get sick and tired of the rich getting richer. we do a tax -- >> what you said was not right, that is all i am saying. i come from the lower middle-class originally, we didn't have anything so don't spew that stuff on me. maria: there you go. >> democrats were talking corporate income tax policy.
in 2012-13 president obama, in the senate floor talking about the tax cut for the rich, i don't bite and voters shouldn't be there. this is the centerpiece, republicans have to be unapologetic about it and it is progrowth. >> the fact we are tiptoeing around it is the reason cutting the corporate tax rate, the highest corporate tax rate in the developed world, a higher corporate tax rate in italy, france, all these other countries, we are not competitive, that is why companies, we are leaving the united states and going overseas, it is cheaper for companies in other countries to invest in the united states and companies in the united states to invest here. that is the issue at hand. dagen: the sloganeering will be permanent tax cuts for companies, temporary tax cuts for individuals was that is how it is playing out. these tax cuts will disappear. they will never disappear and it puts the burden on future representatives in the house
and senate to continue tax cuts for individuals. i don't think anybody in dc believe tax cuts for individuals or doubling standard deduction will never go away. >> why detective have to be tempered? no democrat will get on board with this. that is why they are in 1.5 trillion. you can make individual tax cuts permanent as well. >> it is complex and convoluted with sunrise and sunsets, you see where it goes to the joint committee what is going to happen but ron johnson is a no vote on this because it is not supporting small businesses and their tax cuts. he wants a lower tax rate. 1.7 million small businesses subjugated to the obamacare taxes hampering and stifling their investment --
>> the russell 2000 index. this is the index that houses small companies -- >> it is a barometer of tax cuts. what we saw is higher yesterday more than the brought averages, most of these companies are located in the united states, they make their money and dollars and employ citizens and subjugated to 44% tax rates when you take the thin. maria: this is why ron johnson is a no. >> the russell 2000 volatility higher than the s&p 500 volatility, that is telling, you need to look at the barometer whether tax-cut i going to get done. >> the house plan for small businesses is ridiculously complex, it is not good, not
clear, not that clear-cut. if you look at the details there are level the phase in. dagen: the senate version is better, not an overall tax-cut with all these bumpers and guardrails put in, basically it adds a tax credit, deduction. >> still too complicated because they won't bring down the top individual rate that is why small businesses are saying this might not be so good for us and they would not get on board with this until the house made it richer. >> you wonder when they are in conference and had these bills together and debating it there are changes. it will look different. >> can they get something to the president by december 12th like they wanted, december 8th we had a big date coming up too when they need to do the budget. dagen: december 12th the
alabama election. >> they -- that is the vote. the eighth and the 12th are two critical dates coming up. maria: we will continue this conversation, 20 people hurt after a massive fire at a senior living facility in pennsylvania, it has been a dramatic scene as elderly patients were wheeled out of the blaze on beds and in wheelchairs, retail watch keeping and i on abercrombie and fitch placing earnings this morning, good news as stocks jump after the retailer posted and earnings beat, stay with us. ♪
evacuate into the cold committee had to be pushed in wheelchairs or rolled on beds. westchester avenue fire department met with intense flames. >> heavy fire outside the building, crews along with the police department and fire debarment entered this building, helped with evacuation. at this time emergency personnel relocated residents through several shelters in the borough, several were transported to local hospitals. maria: that blaze broke out at 11:00 last night, because of the fire is under investigation. new suitors lining up for 21st century fox, the parent company of foxbusiness, comcast expressing interest in acquiring a substantial piece of the company. we should say at this time 20th century fox is declining to comment on these reports. the takeover interest gained steam, disney held fox with 21st century fox but failed to
reach a deal on movie and tv assets. shares of comcast are down. it is also reported that verizon has interest as well. there is a bidding war going on. shares of 21st century fox have been soaring, almost 10% yesterday after the bell. the stock is getting a bit as well. gasket add to its gains after the bell tonight, shares jumping this morning as much as 8% after the retailer raised its outlook for the full year. the upbeat news out of the key holiday shopping season, gas is up 20% so far this year. abercrombie and fitch will release third-quarter numbers, investors listening for any forecast for holiday sales, abercrombie shares up 5% in 2017. fashion startup placing its ipo below its target range, pricing shares at $15 a piece in a regulatory filing targeting $18 a share to $20 a share, concerns about competition and
long-term growth prospects put pressure on the ipo pricing. we will see about that collective retail environment, walmart yesterday, what a day. >> and professor galloway so poignant about a lot of his facts, walmart pivoted to the online, got aggressive, you are starting to see sales turnarounds on the online omni channel but 21st century fox, rumors and talks and discussions that sony is also in there. you are starting to see the content isn't king, it is the distribution in pipes but you need the content, 21st century has that, that is why you see verizon distributing through their system and sony. sony is talking to acquire more assets. maria: you have the simpsons, the hottest show there is right now that fox produces on nbc.
obviously they are very attractive aspects. >> it is not going away but the fcc, what happens with the at&t time ordeal will detail what happens with 21st century fox. >> both go through. maria: fox changed televised entertainment. energy, married with children, the simpsons, family guy, ever watch family guy? >> across all cable channels. dagen: it is hilarious. >> i'm more of the simpsons guy myself. maria: i am a family guy guy. when we come back, ruling the road, tesla unveiled its long-awaited semitruck and the roadster, the fastest production car ever made. a vision of faith, the museum of the bible founded by the president of hobby lobby opens in washington, we are back in two minutes time. ♪ the sun goes down
maria: let's look at markets, dow jones industrial average down 30 points, another triple digit move after the senate finance committee advances tax reform hours after house republicans passed their own bill to overall the nation's tax code. want to bring in the ceo of principle global investors, jim mclaughlin. good to see you, joining us. $445 million in assets under management, you got to out locate that. what are you doing giving away
these markets? >> us equities, i say with a lot less -- a lot more nervousness than i did two or three years ago because they are at a higher level but looking where we go in terms of ratings, 20 times earnings, 5% earnings yield against a 10 year bond yield sounds like good value. i would continue to buy that. the added dimension, meaningful and -- passing through to the president's desk that would be a boost to the market in my view. maria: do you want to be in small caps where you would imagine beneficiaries of this plan? >> i like small and mid-cap's. don't forget the mid-caps, small and mid-cap tend to be domestic earnings and i would say in terms of the economy and
profitability, developed economy. if you are in the domestic economy, small and mid-cap's are a nice place to be. >> a meaningful and coherent plan, is that a bigger issue on the small business tax side, a chance for not so much? >> not so much on the individual side but the priority, doing something about pass-through business taxation. if they can reduce marginal tax rates, that -- in economic terms, make a big difference to the incentive structure. the famous tax returns, what they depended on was reducing the marginal rate of tax while broadening the tax base so there isn't a destabilizing
deficit. if they can do that -- >> looking for more on the individual side. >> got to start matter. a bipartisan priority, to the incoherence, that is more incoherent than the individual -- maria: more will come on the individual side. >> it could. this is not necessarily won and done. the thing that bothers me, by december 12th, very ambitious, this is complicated -- one of my fears is unintended consequences. >> we have the fed potentially raising rates and a bunch of governors talking about 3 hikes next year. how does that play in the market. >> 25 basis point raise in
december, almost 100% consensus, surprised if they didn't. it wouldn't be good news if they didn't, softness in the economy. i'm below the fed, two rate increases next year rather than one, rather than three. in december next year, takes it to 2%, the 10 year yield going up, you could accommodate that on the yield curve landing and that is my central expectation, a pretty decent year for equities. dagen: what are the unintended consequences? >> broadening the tax brace, that is how it works. it may have job consequences. and access to capital. and some issues with jobs.
the unintended consequence that are avoided. that is what usually happens taking time over a taxable, not just bureaucracy but work those things through. i'm optimistic than it may be too bad but they have at risk. >> you like technology? off the charts. >> some are probably too high but the whole basket of technology is one of the reasons the us private sector is so strong and important, utilization of technology would compare our market with foreign markets, no comparison, we have technology, the economy of the future, all companies and banks, not the economy of the future. that makes the attached to the us equity market. >> technology's growth has a reasonable price when you compare to consumer staples. maria: great to have you on the
show, please come back soon. thank you for coming back, coming up now franken on fire, the senator accused of groping and kissing a woman on a uso tour before he was in office. international con, painting said to be by leonardo da vinci software record shattering amount $450 million but there are questions about its authenticity, back in a moment right here. ♪ gravity ♪ it is working against me ♪ ♪ gravity ♪ ♪ wants to bring me down ♪
welcome back good friday morning everyone thank you so much for joining us. it is friday november 17. the senate finance committee moves its competing plans forward. they will get moving after they return from thanksgiving. a woman said sender al franken groped and kissed her years ago. if i come out and speak out then. i probably would get fired.
i was afraid of that. former president bill clinton facing criticism from within his own party. he should've resigned in the aftermath of the lewinsky scandal. markets under some selling pressure this morning. another big rally yesterday. the nasdaq is up about five points. also a similar trading activity although most of the averages are higher but just fractionally. it is overnight a mixed performance about the close. new questions over this week's record setting auction. some people are raising concerns about the 450 million dollar da dollar da vinci painting. the story had. gearing up to be a super weekend at the box office.
there are more. we have full box office preview coming up later this hour. a sexual harassment scandal hitting the senate. president trump denouncing al franken after a los angeles radio host accused him of groping and kissing her. the picture is really bad it speaks a thousand words. in pictures 345 or six while she sleeps. and i think just last week he was lectionary anyone who would listen about sexual harassment and respect for wisdom. they apologize in the statement that read in part this. i respect women i don't respect men who don't and the
fact that my own actions have given people a good reason to doubt that makes me feel ashamed. now the senior fellow at the university of virginia. along with the campaign strategist ted cruz jason johnson. good to see you gentlemen think you so much for joining us. your thoughts here. is not a partisan issue. these are serious allegations and they have said it. it needs to be investigated. i worked 12 years in the house and senate you don't need to spend more than a week on capitol hill to heal -- to hear these kind of rumors. i don't think anybody really knows at this point. a lot of people are speculating that there are a lot more to come. this is the tip of the iceberg. in this we can agree. this is the tip of the iceberg. it's not good. it's not a partisan issue. and we really don't know where
it will go. one of the interest in things is a suggestion that senator franken will be investigated by the ethics committee. they found zero violations that actually held anybody accountable even after hundreds of really big smokes green. basically looking at the history of that. is this the way it sweeps aside and moves on. is the report on the roughly $15 million.
as a woman at conservative witnessing this. in my experiences with some other less leaning liberals they can use their political position as cover. they are more highly evolved. they did not issue a second statement. as to the photo it was clearly intended to be funny. i should not had done it was part of his first statement. what's so funny about it.
what was groping or seeming to grow a woman a laugh riot. they use this as cover. i respect women that is something you learn as a young man. president trump appears to be referencing a new york magazine article about the quoted al franken back in 1985 he offered a joke about leslie stahl while writing a sketch about indy routing. it evolved leslie stahl been passed out. when she was taken to a closet
and raped. this is a joke that he wrote allegedly back about 12 years ago. that's i think he's referencing. demeaning women and abusing women that was humor to him that's about power and manipulation. and it is the most appalling behavior. and there's a photograph of it. there's a photograph. let me switch gears and get your take on this. the democratic seminar kristin gilder. --dash mike hildebrandt what do you think. i think she later clarified.
we say that we have the access hollywood tape of now president trump you need to look at this all as a whole. i don't think we understand what those standards are. how do you evaluate the time what are the standards when you're looking at a political election versus legal proceedings. you differentiate there's a picture. what do you need to differentiate. as your own network has reported there are eight or nine women that have made allegations against the president. if they deny the allegations yet you have other evidence that you have their testimony. i'm inclined to believe all of these women's testimonies.
there are no allegations against the president he said during the campaign that wasn't true. there will be a lawsuit. were talking about a situation where we have a picture i am not absolving them in any way i'm just simply saying we denied those allegations of the women that have me those claims. i don't think i think this is during the campaign. it's not the same at all. this is conduct that happened before both of those people were in public office. all of these women made it
up. you've a sitting u.s. is senator saying what he did was wrong. another sitting u.s. senator. we've a picture of it. we will leave it there. thank you very much for weighing in. these are tough subjects. in the new jersey senator he is not returning to washington with a message for his political enemies. a painting said to be a record painting. and at $4.95, you can trade with a clear advantage. fidelity, where smarter investors will always be. and at $4.95, you can trade with a clear advantage. i am totally blind.

our job is not done. the senate well had to do their work and we will come back and when we finish the job we make this promise to you. we will come back in a bigger celebration because we have listened to the american public. and the senate finance committee senate to the full senate last night. this morning and the president praised the republican victories tweeting this. if we get tax cuts in reform we will see some great results. if democrats were not such obstructionist. we would be able to get many of the ideas into the bill. joining me right now is the as a chairman of the white house counsel. kevin, good to see you.
this is obviously a big positive. do you think it will look very different when the two sides get together and conference after thanksgiving to really humor out what this slot will look like. one is that the senate bill becomes so perfect and the second is that you mention that they are quite a bit different and they have a conference and the put the pieces together. the president president is happy with either pass. a big middle-class tax cut. there are some details as you know about how do we deal with small businesses and s corpse and how do we make our international tax rules. all those things are being worked out in the committees right now. there is a staff on both sides of there. we look forward to seeing the final product. how do you sell something that is basically good to be raising taxes on some americans much of it is because of the business tax.
whether it's pass-through or the corporate rate. what is the pushback on the argument that you're raising taxes on some americans to pay for lower taxes on corporations. there are hundred 50 million taxpayers in this world. and every single one of them has a story. there will be some special cases where the have the taxes go for sure. the big three objectives were middle-class tax cut the numbers are big. especially if you look at the expanded child credit. it's a lot simpler because of the big standard deduction and the part that i've been talking about for 20 years the idea that if we cut the corporate tax and then we bring factories home. that drives up the wages. i agree with that. the corporate tax cut is very powerful. you deal people do a people
pushing back on certain elements here. the latest amendment includes changes to the tax treatment. they would be required to hold assets but people are wondering if in fact that's enough. the whole time on the campaign the present was very clear. carried interest was unfair. to treat income as capital gains. what is the answer. how come moore wasn't done on carried interest there. they have these big three objectives that he's very pleased to see that they are looking at the carried interest provisions as well. at something he spoke a lot about. if to go back just slightly and look at the bigger picture that there's an equity and efficiency trade-off in every tax bill. they've different opinions about how you will draw the line. in the end we need enough
votes to put it through the senate. it was almost as big a victory as a celtics over the war years last night. a huge victory last night. the senators get to address their opinions. you will have to vote for it before you can see it. that's why you can watch this process and go. i was very impressed with the senator yesterday. obviously things got heated in the senate. we have that exchange that we will run in the second. we know going into any tax play and that the left was good to have their talking points ready. this was a hole cut for the rich. listen to this. i want to get your reaction to the senator i really resent anybody that i'm just doing this for the rich.
i think you guys overplay that all the time it gets old. i'm not through. i get sick and tired of it. it's a nice political play. i get sick and tighter getting to richard and richard. what you said it was not right. that's all i'm saying. i come from the lower middle class originally. don't spew that stuff on me. and yet kevin when the talking point comes out you need to be there. he have to explain to people that it's actually not the case. are they doing enough to explain what this plan is. it still looks like it has enough support in the senate
to become law. they are doing enough. as you know what's can happen is that six months from now hopefully i will come back on the show and we will be looking at the wage data. it doesn't seem to be showing up yet. that's in the end what is going to matter to voters. if you look at the academic data there is a lot of reason to believe that they will be very naked. i think in the end they watch that kind of stuff and they say i hope they work it out and in the end they care about their own lives. i really believe that after studying this for decades that it was designed in a way that was really moving in the economy forward. that's what the senator was so emotional. he does not believe that at of ideology. he studied the issue with the staff and with us. they had tended to have big wage increases in growth increases.
the organization of developed countries. they were basically saying thank god the u.s. is finally adopting u.s. norms. you wonder why the democrats are still fighting. it's a political ideology. and it's just politics. you believe in the direct impact of this plan would be higher wages and economic growth. let me ask you then. do you feel worried that the senate in the plan. has an idea to delay the corporate rate going to 20% by one year. president trump has made it absolutely clear that he wants the rate cut right away if you look at what the senate guys are doing. they have these rules. in order to pass the bill. they might have to delay a year.
if you delay a year you do create two effects. affects. one negative and one positive. the positive effect. is that you give people an incentive to buy more capital equipment next year to get a 35% benefit. thus those are moving in opposite directions. i can see why the senate is looking for ways to get this thing to fit their through all of the holes i can fit through. and that saves a hundred billion dollars. the president significantly refers that. are they going to be permanent. the intent is that they would be permanent and because of the budget roles there might be some things and there hopefully as little as possible in the end has to expire because if it affects the budget outside of the budget window then you have to appeal it -- repeal it.
my guess is that there is going to be some stuff like the expensing for some example. the history of these progrowth things is that they do get extended over and over again. and certainly the intent is to make it permanent to give you an example in the first year if you expense something that you will write off over seven years and then then it doesn't cost anything in the budget calculus. you're not taking any tax break there. the whole seven years starts from the beginning. that cost a lot of money. that affect a pulling stuff into the window is minimized. they could add can add a year for free because there is no machine that will be written outside of ten years.

i don't think this is a real challenge. we will present the moderate and we have the right. it's on our side. the enormity of being in saudi arabia and sitting with the future king. i have said to them are you expecting them to cover up. all of the women would on a silly want you to cover up. what is your take on what's going on there. as a society and as an ally. and fighting other countries that hate us i think it will will be increasingly critical for us to step up as i ran it will clearly and is already moving into the region. as we defeat the islamic state. they will try to take over.
i think it is hard to overstate the importance i think it is extraordinary in the matter of three weeks. i sat down with the prime minister and then the president and then the crown prince. i think it's incredible that these three nations have a common theme. that's by why you are seen such cohesiveness and even israel. one of the things that worries me the most. another thing that concerns me is what's happening in yemen. we want the new crown prince to actually be temperament. while i was in riyadh i also said donald was steven mnuchin

>> all that coming up this morning, and talk about a big rig, last night tesla shifted into high gear in vialing all electric semi truck wlonlon describes what it feels like to drive vehicle can attractively to up 500 miles on single charge. >> because this truck has no gears there is no -- no gears it has one gear, it is smooth like driving it is like driving -- a model s, or x, or three it is big. it is really super easy to drive incredibly responsive unlike any truck you have ever driven. >> good to see you -- >> good to see they thanks for joining us, autonomous cars innovative materials what did you think of the big reveal. >> it is going to be cheaper than diesel semi, and by the way, that truck autonomous today not fully a.m.s we think
cost could be reduced by 75% from day cheaper than rail more goods over trucks and going to completely transform logistics as we know it. maria: wow. >> there is one word you need to remember. dagen: unions never going to happen i say "never" would put that out in future, again my parents ran a wholesale grocery store used to get i dloifrdz by rail in 70s trucking, unions, essentially, did away with that for lack of a better phrase. a great point if you look at the autonomous guideline regulation the teamsters were able to get out of bill language would support autoimmunes trucks we think when 24 comes out trucks are ready to go umz there will be a driver in the front so that 75 --% includes one driver at front you can imagine 23 two in a truck in the back. >> so you have tesla as number
one holding, in the portfolio, for the etf that you cover, one of the interesting things jim, knowable short seller hugely bearish on tesla for several reasons one the auto mfshz going eb by 2020, 2025 huge debt load automotive a solid state batteries that will be two and a half times density 500 miles per charges d'affaires in one minute what do you what is your take on the bear case theseize. >> batteries one of the reasons automakers have later time lines for ed's don't have battery capability that tesla has the giga factor, right so you need that in order to produce cars, and one thing that tesla has no, no other aurment automakers have collecting cars, auto pilot going to turn that into their version of
autonomous uber, capital requirements a thing of the past. maria: also revealed a roadster not only surprise elon unveiling 200,000 dollar roadster updated version of sports car about musk says fastest production car made from zero to 60 less than two seconds are you surprised by that. >> i mean it is amazing performance, and we've seen tesla deliver like in this in the past, tesla a start-up in industry that really kills start-ups,they made it right? so we're not surprised, you see them we have seen them do things ahead of other automakers, you know again autonomous technology is one of those major things, and we think that -- the fact that tesla was built from ground up, as a software company, makes it able to deliver types of innovations that other automakers are catching up to --
>> there meeting with the big flashy car having trouble doing the car that some day could be kind of car the average american is that a problem for you in the fact talking sports cars, with everyday car. >> production is important we think that is short-term look to long term five year investment horizon we think long term, two the three years going to turn on autonomous taxi services, to make the case that tesla won't be able to do that you have to say okay, are they going to be able to produce cars at all? right, we think they will. so we are confident in that long term. >> traction has not caught on yet right? in terms of sales are customers buying this? >> well. >> day? >> yes, so we have seen demand certainly outpace expectations for the model 3 we have seen preorders, very high numbers, and we actually think that you know anyone that buys a model 3 once able to sign for that autonomous version uber can collect money back on the car, this becomes something that
was stranded asset you can make back investment in the vehicle. maria: wow good stuff thanks so much jerry jones denied by nfl has about rejected a ask from dallas cowboys owner to discuss commissioner roger goodell's contract, juice press sky-high see what the chairman says about expansion plans into airports straight ahead. ♪ ♪ 6

games former nfl star co jack brewer with us jack good to see you. >> great to see you. >> what did you think about new look. >> o i liked it a lot actually, a new perspective to the game, you know like you say watch my 19-year-old playing video gales all the time exactly dead-on that is what you see, almost looks real. >> how play develops you don't see that from side angle here perspective how lanes open up passes, runs can happen interesting way to see how game develops. >> it is funny when you are playing in angle is what you watch as you prepare obviously you know that, so you know to get the pans engaged in that you can really see like you said how plays develop everyone assigned, football about gaps, about hidden gap filling gaps on defense about filling your lanes, so you are able to see that now and i think you know they've got on to something makes experience better for the fan and educate the fan more about the game.
>> i am surprised it took this long, we've seen cams like this in college football that go across the stadium so you've seen this do you think going to start implementing drones to start filming looking at certain plays. >> they already have drones, all around the stadiums, now you go in pregame, i don't think they use them as much during the during the play, i would assume that the nfl will pass those new rules as well, but you know, you hit it dead-on i think using new technologies will help the game advance this stuff has been there right you have been able to see views, for probably over a decade i know when i played we had things moving around i am getting pretty old. maria: wow. >> technology has been there, yeah. dagen: to keep eyeballs point-blank worry about preventing any more -- viewership loss. >> fan experience is off to i don't go very many football games anymore i haven't bone

situation jerry jones best player got suspended six games, he was suspended for alleged domestic violence if you look you dig back you peel back this case you see that goodell never even spoke to the accuser to nfl lead investigator, on the case so jerry jones is really up in arms about this. >> that is the biggest issue roger goodell judge jury executioner no commonality menz special and domestic violence dispute allegations. >> about suspensions going on. >> a sport nowadays will basically suspend a player if one phone call from a sponsor. without doing any kind of investigation, with whatsoever he said she said quite frankly it is -- it is one sponsor making a private phone call. >> i think we should be more concerned about bob mcnair
than jerry jones. >> good point remember that back in may, jerry jones voted, give a compensation right to extended roger goodell's contract already signed off on that, and that may come back to bite him. maria: we leave it there jack always great to see you thank you so much graiksz on baby girl. >> thank you again. >> congratulations on baby girl. >> there she is, aww. >> her name is. >> o via. >> victorious woman born veterans day what does that stay russell wilson teams up with juice press how super bowl champ is bringing drinks to the west coast check out new humanoid robots from bonn dynamics high-tech machine now able to do backflips. back in a moment. .

we are not apologetic about the fact unfortunately, the big food companies have distortsdz viewpoint what you should pay they have denigrated quality in order to lower the price, but in that in that instance they have sacrificed quality tremendously, and truth is that organic produce is one hundred percent more expensive many times than conventional so as a result, prices will be higher. >> i agree worth every dollar. >> we will leave it there great to see you congrats. >> thank you so much. >> michael, juice press we will be right back, stay with us. ...at t. rowe price... ...we've helped our investors stay confident for over 75 years. call us or your advisor. t. rowe price. invest with confidence.

13 republicans voted against bill president trump tweeted great numbers on stocks economy if we get tax cuts and reform we will see some really great results, adding this, if democrats were not such object struckinists understood power of lower taxes would be able to get many of their ideas into the bill from washington house jair committee member louie gomer of texas goods to see you thanks for joining us. >> good to be with you. >> congratulations to you this is a big deal, we know, passing that bill, what are your thoughts about the senate can senate get it over finish line just naming you know, ron johnson, you know, john mccain, does not like the president, he doesn't want to do anything, in terms of legislation passing you know jeff flake also has problems, bob corker has problems with the president. do you think can senate pass something? >> well sure they can pass something but going to have to quit sounding like -- democrats given dinformation
young dineel would have jurisdiction to bring out obamacare a lot better bill is extremely liberal but he and wife are both, they are decent honorable honest people but the reason pelosi removed him as chairman she wanted cap and trade pushed through it would have added massive taxes, to corporations and dingell said not only a tax it is a great big tax, what a lot of people do not understand when you lower prices, or lower the corporate rate, you have just lowered prices for the poorest in the country who pay a far greater percentage of their income for the basics they need those prices come down, the prices of goods and services, can you imagine, 35% eliminated all corporate tax, the biggest beneficiaries would be nation's poor, and we
could compete across the world, when you knock down prices by knocking out the -- the corporate tax, but getting it down to 20 was a huge win, i wish that mcconnell ryan listened to the president he wanted to work something out came up with 20, they came down from where they were so at 20, still a huge help for the nation's poor, and i am sick and tired of people playing politics saying oh just for rich corporations corporate tax most insidious tax there is because it -- it is the largest tariff that any industrialized nation puts on its own goods and sfervices time to give that a break give poor a break more jobs more income increase revenue long run i am thrilled we passed it senate has to get realistic, and do what is good for the american people.
>> congressman the senate is going to include a repeal of the individual mandate is that going to accelerate this getting done by christmas or is that going to get in the way? >> no, no, no, it is going to speed things up, and i really think most of us in the house, want the republicans that is, we wanted to eliminate individual mandate what that does that allows us to give even bigger tax breaks which are going to help the economy even more, i couldn't believe about the senate when talking about putting the stuff off, for year. >> my gosh what they would be doing if they put this off for a year is they would be letting the democrats take the majority next year, and then the tax cuts would kick in corporate tax cuts, and then the economy would improve just in time for the new democratic majority to say look what we did for the economy, i mean that is nuts. crazy. dagen: some falls on your shoulders not just you as an
individual but you as a member of the house of representatives, because if you had about tackled this first rather than obamacare repeal if this had been first on table in february it could have gotten done by the end of the year and then you could have made -- >> actually, we did do this early and what happened we did it back with march, but the senate is once again, the problem where this happened so when you say if you had gotten this done you don't just mean house republicans you really mean democrat -- the -- actually the republicans in the house refused to vote for it, really made the difference. >>. dagen: congressman we koobt. >> a lot bigger tax cut if we had done that and senate had gotten onboard -- dagen: did not refer to democrats as members of the house and members of the senate when it comes to actually passing legislation. because nobody will lift one
finger to do anything to help american people if republican is involved. >> that is the way it looking. maria: let me ask you this. >> surprised how democrats voted for, because i know some of them know in their hearts that you lower corporate rates there is going to be big, bigger incomes more jobs economy is going to shoot up. some know that -- >> i totally understand i agree that you lower corporate tax it has a major impact, creating environment for business, that noirjz them to hire new workers invest in business not just democrats having problems, let me read you on for committee of for responsible budget, fundamentally the senate bill suffers from same fatal floor as house bill trying to cut taxes one and half trillion no plan to pay for cuts in fact tax cuts that add to debt do less to grow economy can skwlly responsible reform may hurt economic growth over long term, i recognize your -- your priority right now is growth, but when does getting your arms around the debt 20
trillion dollars become a priority sir? >> well, i want -- we've been working on that for sometime. but now majority of us working on that -- but it is really -- rich to hear the people that gave us a 1.5 trillion-dollar deficit in obama's first year, come in talk about the deficit we're doing but it was sad to come to grips with it but some of us finally realized we cannot tax our way sufficiently to -- to deal with the debt. there is only one way we're going to save this economy for future generations that is with growth it can't be 2 or 3% it has got to be major growth only then will we dramatically bring down the deficit. so we are looking for big economic growth and that brings down the -- the
deficit, otherwise we don't do it and we keep spiraling up until we are out of control. maria: priority one kevin kelly. >> it is a big deal. >> congressman i think usual hitting the nail on head we need to grow the pie not unaccounted it up into smaller pieces what do you think big impediment getting this done we are promised done by december, early december so it could be on president's desk we can sign by christmas what will not get this done? >> you ask what is the biggest impediment? it is people some people in the senate dislike for the president. if they will put aside their -- juvenile feelings about the president and say, doesn't matter who is president i want to do that is best for the american people, we will get this tax cut done the next day >> what if they don't what is plan b? what if they don't. >> then we've got to come after them we got to get -- like the president has been saying earlier this year we got to get republicans who
don't care who is president they care about doing what is best for the american people, then we will get it done but i think those who have been taking shots at the president, when they realize that their own seats are at stake even if they are not after two or four years they will come around and do the right thing, it is amazing what elections do for help doing right things. >> peter king thinks this seat is in general democratsing targeted his seat in 2018 election, so he thinks his seat is in generjeopardy if he votes yes raising taxes on people in new york with litigious of salt. >> i know people in new york, and california, and new jersey. maria: illinois. >> and illinois that are concerned about that, but the fact is other states are going to get hurt too, because there is limitation they are not able to get sales tax an effect on everybody but, overall, effect is a good
thing, the fact is the reason anybody would complain about salt not being deductible is that it is politics they are afraid perception is among voters they are going to get hurt actually that is one of the things to streamline tax code done across the board going to affect everybody talking to guy from california yesterday said ahh, from texas your property taxes so much higher than ours, and man, i have been paying a whole lot more property tax things that are going to that is going to affect everybody. but most of us see that the overall good of the country dictates let's get this tax deal done. maria: all right congressman leave it there great to see you. thank you so much. >> coming up, al franken under fire accused of groping kissing a woman in uso tour in 2006 pictures to prove it his

. maria: welcome back, china announced they are sending a diplomat to north korea, for the first time in two years, as a special envoy of chinese president xi jinping, the announcement less than a week after president trump returned home from 13-day trip across asia china tweeted china sending envoy delegation to north korea big move we will see what happens, joining us right now a fellow hoover institute form policy director romney ryan presidential campaign ticket, good to see you thanks for being here. >> good morning, everyone. . >> your take on this envoy to north korea big deal. >> yeah this is very important, i mean ostensibly the idea that this envoy is going to update north korean on exactly what happened at recent chinese party congress election but really we know what this is about this is
about the -- exercise of pressure potentially on north koreans, to halt their continuing march toward nuclearization, so we will see what happens we don't know exactly what the envoy is going to say don't know what the progress is going to be on heels of president's trip to asia i think good news. >> really important, because here you have you look at mainstream media showing stories of the president drinking sip of water headlines china sending envoy to nor first time in long time maybe he is making a dinners. >> certainly here is one thing that is clear whatever we were doing with north korea, for the last 8 years surely didn't work right in because look where we are at additional nuclear tests, at additiondigit relent not stopped, a different approach might yield different results might see that soon. >> kevin china enabled north
korea to this point the reason why able to develop these weapons is case they were trained in china, china supplies oil to them, banking financial services, is china actually going to change their beat is this special envoy going to get the message across? >> you know we will have to see i don't know that we know exactly yet but it is absolutely clear you are right chinese key to cracking the code without chinese north koreans have no economy, they have no training as you say. they have no way out. so if chinese are willing to expert additional pressure willing to say knock it off kim jong-un will have impact make no mistake about that. >> you know you talk about china, the leverage there but, of course, north korea has black market relationships with a lot of other countries here, if china is leaning on north korea are they going to lean on some other relationships as well? or do you just see sort of a
refunneling away from china towards actors around the world. >> you are right black market relationships ultimately it is chinese perspective of geography as well boarded between north korea, and china that relationship becomes critical, by the way, china has leverage on some other rogue actors as well not lining china is just speaking for itself, potentially, so the reason why they are so critical yes, they hold economic keys to the castle but beyond that all of their relationships with all actors want to do business with north korea i think that is important factor as well, previously we just have not been able to get that leverage with china not able to make that progress for whatever reason during the obama administration, we just weren't there so hopefully, now, things are moving in different direction we will see. maria: we will leave it there good to see you thanks so much. >> good to be with you. >> still ahead abercrombie & fitch, as well as foot locker

approaching full employment and while the headlined unemployment rate 4.1%, the measure i look at most significantly unemployed encouraged workers people working part-time for economic reasons, even that prerecession lows that is context and i have said up to now i think regulatory review tax reform, the reform elements corporate tax reform could be helpful if it encourages companies low kate plants invest more vocal that government debt to gdp, is historically high likely unsustainable levels, particularly when you look at 49 trillion of unfunded entitlements i think we've got to be very careful not to do things that increase debt to gdp and deficit, because i think already out unsustainable levels. >> you make all good points, but you did say the economy
basically is getting better you look at unemployment story. >> yeah. >> that certainly approved you just mentioned that you got two quarters of 3% growth, obviously is good thing, is that one of the reasons that recently you said you are not actively considering hiking interest rates another increase? >> if you -- gdp forecast for dallas fed 2 1/2%, and so sluggish by historical standards but certainly enough to continue to take slack out of the labor marlth the -- market the reason i said actively twrg next steps at or near full employment my projection our projection dallas fed wear likely to where over shoot maximum sustainable employment even though we have been slow to meet our inflaigs target amount of overshoot i need to take into account thinking about removing accommodations something i will be looking at degree of overshoot and
counterbalanc. >> where have we seen inflation. >> going on i think on inflaigs, part of what is going on because we are taking slack out of the labor market we are getting toward full unemployment you have cyclical pressures have not seen in it wages or prices in my opinion because we've got a very strong structural headwind what i call technology enabled disruption, and to some extent globalization mainly disruption what do i mean technology playoffing people consumers at the use technology to shop for lower prices taking away pricing power of businesses other thing going on you've got a college education, you are able to just for this trend if you have got a high school education or less, unless you get retrained, your finding your job restructured or eliminated and you probably don't have a lot of negotiations power in wages, and so this structural
headwind i think offsetting some cycle forces i believe the reason inflaigs has been muted the structural headwinds are accelerating about cycle for his building structural headwinds are not going away i think having a muted affect on inflaigs. >> you make an important point we are talking technology the fact robotics taking over different skill set to thrive in this economy what do you say about that next 10 years are we going to have robots taking over, many of our jobs? >> we this short answer is yes. we will. now, we can still have full employment with that but the thing that has to happen, we've got to improve early childhood literacy clinical readiness half students going to college not graduating in six years that is key to being able to adapt in this kind of
economy, and we've got to have more with we call middle skills training, 45% of all new jobs middle skills require a lot more training, automotive technicians pipe spleshts nurses we can do that beef up partnerships between businesses junior colleges, and high schools to train people for middle skills jobs they are middle class they pay a lot of money, and we are lagging in creating ecosystem where people get better educated so i think education and improving skills of our labor force got the fob priority number one for us to deal with this trend. maria: this is an important point you are making our viewers want to know when they need what skill sets to thrive not survive, 10, 20 years you are saying 45% new jobs are middle skills area what are those jobs? >> yeah. so one example by the way -- and you know there is a
so-called you have heard a skills gap in united states what do i mean by that, half of half of all small businesses sigh in surveys they cannot fill their skilled job optionwing openings pipe fitters automotive technicians health care i.t. specialists i mentioned there is a list of 20 of these, a lot of them didn't these kind of jobs did not exist 20 years ago automotive person needed less training cars not so, so fist indicated celsius person key person probably most money, and that is who you dealt with bought a car today cars are bought online sales person's job is a lot less important you probably don't deal with salesperson anymore automotive technician highest paid in car dealership probable 150, 175,000 a year people are not aware of this we don't have
enough, jr., colleges in country including dallas partnering with businesses to train more we don't have enough of them. maria: of its walking to auto technician a couple years ago said maria you can eat on floor in my auto store, because it is all technology there is no grease this is not what it was years ago in the car 'is technology based so you really need that skill set. >> right. maria: let me ask you about idea we could get up to 4% growth do you think as things are getting better we see this tax plan come out impacts people having more money in pockets, could we actually see a 4% number near-term? >> let me explain this way what drives growth two things growth in the gdp made up of gdp made up of growth in the work workforce and productivity one problem the population is aging, workforce growth is slowing. okay? the participation rate 66% '07, 63 today we think i
dallas fed bulk is demographic it is aging gets worse next 10 years, going to go to 1 number one we've got to find ways to grow 2 the with workforce working longer second thing productivity issue talking about we've got people in their careers residence a high school education or less, your productivity during career may be going from here to here, why? your jobs getting restructured we are not beefed-up for retraining, so in order to grow faster we've got to grow workforce, improve productivity other things help i want to make sure we keep an eye on ball two things that drive gdp growth, and we need to beef up both. maria: let me ask you this the president of the european central bank said low interest rates in eurozone have not hurt banks he said interest rates will remain low quote well past end of its bond-buying program what do
you say to that? i know even europe is recovering yet planning on keeping rates real low. >> yes, so here is the issue on low rates. european is doing better you got to put in context still growing at historically sluggish rates so i think when i see a 10 year treasury in mid 230s, what does at a tell me one of the things tells me there is a lot of global liquidity because of quantitative easing we are fed, by the way, i am glad starting to reduce our balance sheet i think we should, but the other dhieng it is saying prospects for future growth sluggish one of the big questions demographic issue i mentioned earlier, aging population to almost all advanced economies, by the way, one of the other headwinds in my opinion high levels of government debt to gdp, is also likely to headwind for future economic growth and so that is the reason i think rates are low, and probably why mario draghi
wants to keep flexibility as he thinks about how he is going to manage this. >> your colleague jay powell president pick to replace janet yellen when her term ends next year what can you tell us about jay powell will fed be much different under his leadership he has been n you're clegg soon fed so long. >> first i have worked closely with jay over two years he itself superb outstanding, and so i think very excited about jay powell becoming chairman of the fed. i think like any good organization, though, with the change in leadership, we should be reviewing or practices should look for ways we can improve, the world is changing the economy is changing we need to adapt to that i think jay will be superb leader we know him well around the table work very well together, and i am confident we will be committed to rigor excellence debate, and coming up with good decisions. >> all at a time you've got
unwind balance sheet never this is unprecedented, do you feel it could be disruptive. >> no, i am not a ph.d economist i am a markets person, and my belief in designing this plan for your viewers we're not saying we're not selling securities we are letting maturities run off as they come due, and we have done it in a phased in way when you look at size of phase out relative to market voluminous attracts morning backed securities i think this will be manageable i think this will go well. >> good to see you thanks so much. >> thank you, maria good to talk to you -- >> for more join us on wall street week and 8:00 pm eastern tonight for robert kaplan my special guest we will be back right here.
